Here is a card that I made a while ago. I used my markers on the Backwoods stamp set to create a 3-D setting!
I believe that this set is on the SU! Dormant list. I thought that I would really like it when it first came out, but then after getting it, I didn't use it all that much. The images were neat, but I found them hard to work with and was never really thrilled with my results.
I ended up granting this set as a wish to a fellow demonstrator!
Have a great day!

Because I was making a bunch of them, I needed them to be fairly simple. So I chose the stamp set Farm Life. I used my markers and pencils to color in the animals. Then simply tied ribbon around the top of the card!
I only wish that Ryan had as much fun writing them as I did making them! Being 7 is tough!

My friend Keri Lou (aka Krafty Keri) makes these lovely crocheted flowers that totally match the SU! colors! They are so darn cute! She has an etsy site where she sells them. Or, you can get ahold of me and I can get some ordered for you! Once you have them, you think of a million ways to use them!
For this card I just used my Greenhouse Garden stamp set with Rich Razzleberry and Summer Sun. Then I popped a jumbo eyelet into the crocheted flowers and then glue dotted them to my card! How fun!!!
Anyway, that is my contribution for today! I will be back tomorrow with more stuff that I made, just like promised!

This is the card that my mother in law made for Ryan. She did such a nice job! I love this set and all of the options to add to the tree image! I can't decide if I like the boots or the tire swing more!
Well, that is it of other peoples work. I will be getting some time up in my stamp room tomorrow, if all goes as planned. I have many things running around in my head, so hopefully I can get some of them down on paper.
So, stay-tuned and I promise I will be back with my own work! Thanks for bearing with me!

Here is a card that my sister in law made for Ryans 7th birthday. She used the Under The Stars Stamp set. I love how simple the card is! She thought that it would be fun following our summer camping trips.
Along with this card, Kelly also made a really cool latchhook rug for Ryans bedroom. It is a sports themed rug. And, Ryan just loves it!!! Thank you for being so kind!
Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping in!

Here is a card that my dear friend Keri sent to me for my birthday. She also sent me 3 of the coolest scrapbooks ever! They look like brief cases, but they are photo albums! I must get going and fill them up!
Keri does the best job distressing and sponging! She used the Top Note and Flower die to embellish it. Then finished it off with a build a brad!
I love it! Thank you so much Keri....for the birthday card, gift and most of all your friendship! You are awesome!!!!
Enjoy the day!

Ryan is extremely athletic and loves every sport. For his invitations he wanted soccer...so, that was an easy task! The invitations are done and delivered!
For his cake, he asked for a giraffe. I have my work cut out for me that is for sure! But, I have until Friday to figure that one out!!!!
Enjoy your Saturday!

We have been having a huge baby boom around here! Many of our friends and family are increasing the size of their family!
Here is a card that I made for another friend who just had their baby girl on my birthday! I used my Finial Press Texturz plate on the pink background. I also used my Circle Scissors Plus to make the layers of circles. The Image is from Teddy and Train.
I colored the bear in with my markers and I added some ribbon and sponging for final detail.
I know that there are more babies and more baby cards in my very near future, so please stay tuned!
Have a great day!

Here is a card that I made a while ago. I loved this stamp set Upsy Daisy right out of the gate! It is so versatile and easy to use! For this card, I initially stamped the base with Old Olive and repeated the flower image. For the main image I used my markers to color the flowers and the stems. After I stamped it, I ran it through the crimper to add a little more!
I hope that you all enjoy your day. Here it is back to school day for the kids! So, my life will be changing and I will adjust to a new normal! Have a good one!

This week is my brother-in-law and sister-in-laws anniversary. They will be married for two years and are expecting their first baby any day.
So, this is the card that I made for them. I used my circle scissors plus to cut out the image. This image is from a set in the Holiday Mini called Gifts of the Earth. I used my markers to color it in and did a little sponging to add some depth.
I am working on a swap for SUDEMOONLY that is a sketch this month. I didn't realize how difficult it would be for me to do a sketch swap. I am used to putting things together the way that I think they look nice. Well, needless to say, this is not the same sketch that we are doing. But, I liked it anyway and thought that I would share it!

Here is the card that Lorita Edwards sent to me. She used one of my favorite sets Fifth Avenue Floral. She also used my other current favorite set Teeny Tiny Wishes. The oval punch and the scallop oval punch really help to emphasize the sentiment!
It has been a lot of fun seeing how a color combination can be used in many different ways. I should still be receiving one more swap card that I will share when it arrives!
Enjoy the sunshine!
